Hi Vineet, this is Manie Bhatia.I am really quite excited to know about your fantastic idea of opening an animation studio (& not institute).Currently I am working in a Mumbai based production company "BEYOND ILLUSION" as a Visual Effects(VFX) Supervisor & production pipeline manager. I am also a B.E graduate in Computer Science from university of Rajasthan, Jaipur. Mostly I work on Maya with intense use of MEL.I am into CG industry from last 3 years now I also dream of opening a studio in Rajasthan which would be the combination of art & technology. As you already know that here in India the scene is quite different from abroad. Here people are not technically that sound coz most of the artists are from art background & there are no prerequisites for joining the industry. You can easily be in the industry by doing a part time 3 months course from any institute & that’s the most annoying thing for a cg enthusiast. Now days, there's a institute in every other lane which are raining so called CG artists resulting in lack of jobs, poor packages & bad quality. Institute just doesn’t even bother to teach the technicalities of the software.
So I really appreciate the idea of a studio which is owned by some technical people.
So if you have any kind of query regarding this, you can call me anytime. I will put my best to help you out as you can consider me also in your team.
